EXAM 2014


The 2014 exam will be available on the website from the conclusion of the AGM this Saturday, 5th April. All instructions are on the exam which must be returned by 5:00pm on 10th May at the latest. Please note that all qualified officials MUST sit the exam; failure to do so will mean the loss of qualified status. Other members are strongly advised to attempt the exam. For associate members in particular, it gives an opportunity to assess your own progress and will allow you to identify any areas of weakness to work on with your mentor.
